Product Description

Prism 4-D

View our Exclusive Custom Prism 4-D's Here

  • Compact size flies almost anywhere, even indoors.
  • Super light weight adds extra buoyancy in inconsistent winds.
  • Tough but light carbon frame and reinforcements handle a wide wind range from 0 to 15 mph.
  • Folds up tiny to travel in a suitcase or backpack.
  • Solid pull and balanced controls perform like a bigger kite.

Anywhere, any time, the all-new 4-D makes stunt kiting a blast when nothing else will fly. Its 58" wingspan makes small spaces big so you can fly in tight quarters with ease. At barely 2-1/2 ounces, its super-light weight gives it the buoyancy to stay aloft in swirling breezes and even indoors, where walking backwards with short lines provides enough lift for a huge range of graceful aerobatics. The 4-D’s predecessor, the 3-D, set the world endurance record for indoor flying, and the 4-D improves upon it with more pull and stability as well as a much wider wind range that’s truly impressive for such a lightweight kite.

But super light doesn’t have to mean super-fragile. The 4-D’s high-modulus frame is made from solid carbon rather than delicate tubes, super-stiff but tough enough to bend in a circle without breaking. So this is a kite you can fly in regular winds too, up to 15 mph without overpowering or worry about breakage.

The 4-D is meticulously constructed from ultra-light Icarex polyester sailcloth and Mylar laminate for gossamer weight and a sheen like a cut gem as it passes in front of the sun. Its Microcarbon frame folds to just 23” and fits in a beautiful padded case that you can sneak into any pack or suitcase. To make it a cinch to put together, we designed a clever little wingtip fitting that instantly tensions and de-tensions the leading edge with no knots to fumble with. The bridle is clean and simple with limit knots so you’re always within the adjustment range. And the included 50-foot Spectra flying lines are the perfect length for smaller spaces while still allowing a generous wind window. If you like to fly indoors, there’s room in the case for a second, shorter lineset so you can hone your skills on those cold, dark winter days.

In the air, the 4-D has the precision and presence of a much larger kite. The line feel is balanced and responsive without being twitchy like most small kites. Its light weight and buoyancy makes it forgiving in turbulence and gives you time to recover as the gust passes. For freestyle fanatics, it’ll do a huge range of tricks without the heavy feel of many trick kites. While it takes smaller motions to fly, you don’t have to be an expert to have a blast, making it the perfect addition to any kite bag.

  1. 4D by Prism

    Posted by Steve Kline on 19th Jul 2013

    I just read the review by Glen Mitchell, and what he said seemed pretty accurate. 0 wind or inconsistent winds are what it is best for. I also have been flying stunt kites since 1985. It takes a little different flying style,as I am still trying to get used to it.


  2. I recommend this kite

    Posted by Glenn Mitchell on 15th Feb 2013

    About me first. I'm a white 63 year old male. I'm retired from teaching. I've flown kites non competitively since 1985. I've obtained three " zero wind" kites to fly indoors at my local fitness center on alternated days to my weight training regimen. I'm making up for decades of physical neglect.
    About the kites. Kite #1 was Gomberg's Flick. Be warned, it is not a zero wind indoor kite. It is too heavy and will nosedive consistently in zero wind. If you want a fun outdoor light wind single line SUL, give it a look. Kite #2 is IFlite2 from Highline Kites. This is a true zero wind kite and a consistent joy to fly. Buy this first! Read my review of it elsewhere on this site. Kite #3 is the Prism 4D. Here are my thoughts. You will read online from others how the kite's spars pull loose. You don't hear them say that once they learn to fly the kite that this won't happen. You don't hear them say that pulled spars are better than broken spars I recommend that your first flight be outdoors and using the supplied 50' line. Fly in zero wind, like I did. Take the finger straps off the flight line and just use the loops and your fingers. Set the bridle up for zero wind. Launch the kite and just fly it gently. You will soon learn that the kite is made to fly when you step toward and then away from the kite rhythmically. Develop a feel of keeping some tension on the flight lines at all times. If the lines go slack, give them a quick tug to push the kite higher and then regain tension on the lines. Fly the kite with the minimum expenditure of energy. Fly the kite to pastoral music to develop a feel. If the kite is going to crash, throw away the lines and let the kite settle. No harm, no foul! Next, know that flying the kite on shorter lines is much more challenging. This is what I must do since I intend to fly it indoors in the fitness center basketball court. Finally, wear good shoes. You will be back peddling for a while.
